Schloss Thun

Thun is situated at the northwestern corner of Lake Thun By train it is only 20-minute trip from Bern. Thun is both a transportation hub and a convenient base for city and mountain excursions. 40,000 people live in the city that has a beautiful castle as its major attraction. The castle - today a museum - was built in 1191.

Although Thun is no longer the "little town" of Guiton's day, its urban center hasn't changed dramatically over the last half-century. The Rathausplatz still has a massive 16th Century city hall, and the businesses on the Hauptgasse continue to be arranged on two levels, with the sidewalks outside the upper-story shops serving as an arcade for the stores at ground level.
